Feeding the Darkness

Saturday, 14 January, 2017 - 19:00 to 21:00

Feeding the Darkness

‘Art Thou in Darkness? Mind it not for if thou dost, it will fill thee more…...’

James Naylor (17th century Quaker)

This 65 minute performance is a result of extensive research into the dark world of state-sanctioned torture and its stark impact on victims, perpetrators, families and those who collude in the ‘process’.
